lyrics

a message from a friend:
don’t screw this up, she’s the one for you
you’re a presage for those around you
you can’t botch this one
this is your first call back
and the first day of the rest of your life
peel back the skin
lose yourself in bliss
there’s no love outside of you
twist, corrupt, and turn askew
you will see the angle
sometimes lost but not mangled
the hummingbird sings a song,
the rhythm so sweet
but our ears won’t ever listen
paired together by a sounding cadence
darling, don’t you fret
i’ve still got a thousand words
that can bring you back to life
they will bring you back to life
revelations, all laden with taxes
they’ll start from within
kill the thoughts that chagrin
o, selfish me
o, so it seems
trapped in a dream world of synthetic voices
i’ll fight for you
